The Velvet Underground - 4/25/66 At Scepter Studios, Norman Dolph acetate


I can never truly say enough about the cool cats at SFRP who share the best of the best along with the rarest of the rare. It is a privilege to be a prt of such a community that embodies the music-sharing ideal and I am eternally grateful. All that aside this here is the post I referred to earlier today and apparently many people already have d/l it, but this is for the few who haven't. Great stuff and not likely to be purchased by anyone who doesn't have deep deep pockets ( I believe the auction at eBay was over $25,000 a few days ago). So please sit back and enjoy the beginning sounds from the legendary Velvet. 'Heroin' and 'I'm Waiting For The Man' - sheer heaven over here at DaddyRich's desk...

"This acetate, which is possibly the only surviving copy, represents the first Velvet Underground album as Andy Warhol intended it to be released. " - SFRP

I had to let this one cool off on the back burner so no one would think I could possibly claim this post as having begun with me. Hope you all enjoy!

And... yes! The acetate has topped the $130,000 mark on eBay! That was one great $0.75 investment.

Along with the lost Faust V album, this is the best musical gift I found recently on the web. Thanks!

Not many things surprise me much anymore so I was surprised when I got the chills when All Tomorrow's Parties started.

Wow, that's amazing. Of course, the downside is that "European Son" is causing me to get some strange looks as folks pass my office.

Thanks!

This sounds cool. Too bad it's MIA. I'm content for now checking out the Genesis posts. Thanks for allowing all us piglets to suckle at the breast of your bountiful blog!

I'm gladly adding my voice to the many chimes of thanks and praise for your wonderful sight !!! Even though some links are no longer, they've at least introduced me to certain gems I was unaware of, and can now add to my wish list, witch was down to about 2 or 3 until I entered into this musical eden... So I thank you Sir. DaddyRich !!! I look forward to exploring the rest of the sight and to any new posts... Sincerely P>A>D
PS: Wondering if you know of a San Francisco band called The Serpent Power ? It's on my "still looking for" list.. I'm sure you have... But thought I'd ask. C Ya

PS: Would you be interested in a getting a copy of an all acustic Iggy Pop recording ??? I've seen one boot of some of the songs but not a full version...
